NYC’s Rise in Cop Killings Has Been Tied to the “Black Lives Matter” Rhetoric of ant-cop rallies, one led by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The debate rages on places like Facebook. Typically, there is a racial divide in the perception of the killings, with many minority people denying there has been any increase in cop killings at all –one post I read claimed that “Harlem is peaceful and there has only been one cop killing in the last year” ( did he mean in Harlem or Citywide)?

NYC Police Officers are solidly convinced the marches have in fact led to more cop killings ( at one protest march, a City College Professor who had preached anti-police violence in his classes was arrested up on a bridge with a sack of hammers and wrenches to throw down on the cops below)
